Me and my family choose this restaurant to celebrate my mom' birthday, and this is definately a great decision. You should try grilled chicken with chili salt, fried frog with lemongrass, and especially grilled beef. I am pretty sure that you will satisfy with those 3 dishes.

Very nice food. Standard price. But very very disappointed as owner tried to rip us off by telling the waiter to charge us for two extra beers. He got shocked when my friend could understand vietnamese and my friend corrected them. Just check your bill when you pay and confirm everything so not to get ripped off when ordering.

Strongly recommend the Special Marinated Beef for Barbe. Also the Goat Breast slices for barbe.. .. you will love it. Both marinated items are not easily found in other eatery within HCMC. Don't miss it.

They have such a great menu selection. Really really good food. Great prices. I wanted to try everything on the list! The BBQ yourself was cool but I wasn't too good at it. They were very helpful.

I first ate at Luong Son around 12 years ago, and it really hasn't changed much at all during that time; that is to say, the food is always good, the beer is cold, the management is on task and friendly, and the servers MOVING. Additionally, it's authentic and lively. I usually cringe when I see menus the size of... More

This local restaurant offers you the chance to grill your own food right at the table. The menu was so varied with typical offerings like fish, chicken & beef and more exotic offerings like eels, crab, frogs legs, scorpions & crickets. This is a very basic place with fans, No A/C but good service and very fresh food. We did... More

Close to tourist neighborhood, it is somewhat hard to get more of a local atmosphere, but this restaurant has it. The food is little more expensive than out of the tourist area (e.g. eating pho for $2.50 at an unnamed restaurant), but it is definitely visited by locals and tourist alike and the grill at the table is fun.
